Some Simple Vigilance, Shred Your Trash

Some Simple Vigilance, Shred your TrashThis article first appeared on geekprepper.org

Written by John, geekprepper.org

 

Operational Security is key.

I was talking to a retired Law Enforcement professional a few weeks ago and he commented about how he could learn almost everything he needed to know about someone by going through their garbage. They can determine everything, from your favorite restaurants to how much your car payment is and who you pay it to.

Shred your trash

I’ve known about this for a while, but this reminded me that everyone doesn’t think this way. Most people think “Toss something in the garbage and it’s gone.” Poof! Wrong.

These days you can’t risk just throwing things in the trash, even envelopes with your address on it. Identity Theft is huge right now, and that’s 99% of the info someone needs to start opening credit in YOUR name. A stalker could learn, when and where you eat, the movies you like, what time you shop, where you bank. If someone steals your identity you probably won’t be physically assaulted, but a stalker, who is obsessed with you, or a family member, could really do some damage! This adds a very physical layer to your opsec.

I recommend shredding (or burning, if applicable) anything with this information:

  • Your name
  • Your name and address
  • tear off and shred shipping labels from boxes receipts
  • Bills Insurance/medical statements
  • envelopes from any investments, banks, credit cards, medical, insurance, anything that can link to you to company, financial institution or service provider!
  • your friend’s/family’s name and addresses (return address on envelopes)
  • invoices or receipts for things you’ve ordered online or purchased locally (cash purchases too). No one should know what you’ve been buying or stocking up on! Ever.
  • Random stuff, to muddy the mix, of contents.  I shred random stuff that I print out, and random junk mail just to make it harder to figure out what is what.

I have a large trash can in the garage and every time I dump in more shreddings, I stir it and mix it up really well. Make sure to use a Cross Cut Shredder to make it really hard to get your information! $50 spent on a Cross Cut Shredder is much cheaper than trying to restore your good credit, or your privacy! The shreddings can be burned for further security, thrown away, or recycled as packing materials! Shred your trash Shred your trash This list isn’t 100% complete, but look at what you throw away and decide what value it has, or what harm it can cause if it falls into the wrong hands! Be vigilant!

2-Course MREs from Meal Kit Supply Taste Test

2-Course MREs from Meal Kit Supply Taste TestI received samples of the new 2-course MREs from Meal Kit Supply for review.   They are smaller packaging that the 3 course ones, but include everything you need for a filling meal.  The package I tried was the Vegetarian Ratatouile.  It included the following:  heating unit, Vegetarian Ratatouille entrée, chocolate chip cookie, lemon lime beverage mix, and spoon.

MealsReadytoEat_2I set up the heating unit according to package directions.  All you have to do is open it, and add about 1/2 cup of water to the bag up to the line indicated.  You then wrap the heating unit around the entree and side dish according to the photo illustration.  It was very easy.  The directions say you can place a weight on top of it, but in this case, it was fine without one.

MealsReadytoEat_4I heard the heating unit activate as soon as I placed the weight on it.  The whole thing started puffing up and you hear a sizzling sound.  As the directions say, in 10 minutes, the meal is ready.

I also prepared the lemon lime drink.  You can add water directly to the pouch, but I poured the contents into a 12-ounce water bottle and shook it to mix.

Once the packet was warm I transferred the dish into a bowl.

MealsReadytoEat_5Now for the taste test.  The vegetarian ratatouille was good.  I like the vegetable pieces; the sauce had a good taste.  The lemon lime drink mix was pleasant tasting and reminded me of Gatorade.  Now for the one I was really wondering about: the chocolate chip cookie.  I had reservations about how it might taste but it turned out to be a good treat:  I was impressed at the texture and flavor.  The closest way I can describe it, is it has the feel of a shortbread cookie, with a good amount of chocolate chips.  I shared it with the rest of the family and they liked it as well.

MealsReadytoEat_6I think if I were to eat this in an emergency where there was no power to cook, or if I were outdoors, I would be grateful for the convenience and the warm, filling meal.

(Please note Apartment Prepper has no financial interest in Meal Kit Supply.  This review is for informational purposes only.  Food storage quality varies greatly, so it is best to research your choices prior to making a decision.)

Their website is www.mealkitsupply.com
(http://mealkitsupply.com/us/pages/en/ – the US site).

The meals are made in the U.S.  Another plus is they always cover shipping.

Among the various choices for food storage, MREs have a good shelf life and are certainly easy to use.  If you are in the market for MREs, mealkitsupply.com is a good choice.

All Natural Pain Relief PowerStrips Test + Giveaway

Before All Natural Pain Relief PowerStrips became a sponsor, I tested the product for myself to see if it works.

What are PowerStrips?  PowerStrips is an over the counter pain management product.  It is an adhesive strip that contains fermented red Korean ginseng, colloidal silver, Alpha 3 CMP marine phytoplankton and germanium.

How to use PowerStrips

They are simple to use:  Just peel off one side of the backing, apply the sticky side to the affected area, smooth it out.  Then peel off the other side of the backing and press down some more.  Keep it on for one to two days at the most then replace.

The Test

I was having some pain on my right knee after starting a running program.  I had it checked out and the doctor suggested wrapping it for support and taking some over the counter pain reliever.  I didn’t want to keep taking Advil or Tylenol, so I tried out the PowerStrips.  I am the skeptical sort and always test out products I mention, and I was trying out the PowerStrips before they became a sponsor.

First thing I noticed when I opened the package was a slight pungent scent.  The best way to describe it is, it smells like herbs.  (I’m told the scent is from the Fermented Red Korean Ginseng ingredient.)

I applied the PowerStrip on the knee and waited.

After about an hour I could feel the knee pain easing up.  I could actually feel some relief from the pain, just as I would have had I taken the Advil or aspirin.  I left the strip on for a couple of days.

After that I knew it was time to replace it, as I was starting to feel some discomfort.  I replaced the strip and again, I felt better.  My knee is better these days; but if they act up again, I would use PowerStrips all over again.  (Note:  I am not a medical professional, so if you have chronic pain, see a doctor – this article is just to relate how this particular product worked for my knee pain.)

I don’t mind taking one or two OTC pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen but taking too many pain relief pills for an extended period of time can cause life threatening illness such as heart or circulation problems, intestinal bleeding, liver problems etc.

I was telling my brother about them and interestingly enough, it turns out one of his colleagues swear by PowerStrips for his chronic back pain.  I think PowerStrips provide a good alternative for pain relief.   They are light-weight, easy to use and have a two year shelf life.  For these reasons, they would make a good addition to your first aid and emergency kit.

Now for the giveaway…

We are holding a giveaway for the All Natural Pain Relief PowerStrips.  Please leave a comment below:

What chronic pain or condition would you try out PowerStrips for?

The winner* will be chosen at a random “Pick a Giveaway Winner” drawing on Wednesday, July 30th at 8 pm Central.

*Winner will be notified via email.  Winner must reply to email notification within 48 hours or another winner will be drawn.

Online Tracking that’s Almost Impossible to Stop

Online TrackingToday’s not a normal posting day but I came across this article that really made me think how much more information is being collected and the infinite ways we are being tracked.

http://rt.com/usa/174552-digital-fingerprinting-almost-impossible-block/

This new tracking method does not use cookies, but a new technology called “canvas fingerprinting”  This time around, information is being collected by using our own computer’s unique “fingerprint”  Each machine would run a picture or characters in a sentence just a little differently, this software will attach a number to your computer and collect information about your browsing activities.

A couple of options suggested by the articles suggest using the Tor browser which will slow down your internet (or make you look suspicious according to some sources), or by blocking JavaScript, but this may prevent many websites from loading.

Some people I know have “given up” saying they don’t even care anymore if they get tracked, they’re not doing anything wrong.  They way I see it, my buying habits, browsing habits are no one’s business but my own.  And someday, you may not think you’re doing anything wrong, but someone else might.

Fire Roasted Vegetables for Food Storage

Mountain House Fire Roasted Veg Blend4At last week’s Monday Musings, I mentioned I was catching up on product reviews.  Therefore, in lieu of the scheduled posts, this week is Review Week!

I had the opportunity to test out the new Mountain House Fire Roasted Vegetables.

Mountain House Fire Roasted Veg BlendLong time readers know we’ve tested a few Mountain House entrees, and brought them on camping and backpacking trips.

I was a little iffy about how fire roasted vegetables would turn out, as this is one of my favorite foods and some restaurants don’t even cook them properly.  But I gave it shot so here’s the result.

Here is what the vegetables look as you open the packet.  It contains freeze dried fire roasted bell peppers, onions with corn and black beans.

Mountain House Fire Roasted Veg Blend2

As usual, I followed the instructions to take out the oxygen absorber then just add 1.5 cups boiling water.

Mountain House Fire Roasted Veg Blend3Then mix up the contents to make sure the water has covered the vegetables.  Then seal up the bag and wait.  The directions said leave it alone 7-8 minutes.

I checked it after the 8 minutes were up and the vegetables were ready the the black beans were still a bit tough.  So I left it for another 7 minutes for a total of 15.  By now the black beans were perfect.

Mountain House Fire Roasted Veg Blend5I tasted the vegetables and they were excellent.  They had a sweet, fresh taste and a firm, not mushy consistency.  The pouch contains 2.5 servings.  I had it plain for lunch and it was satisfying.

I think it’s actually better than some of the frozen fire roasted vegetable blends I’ve tried from the supermarket.  They would be great for camping, backpacking and long term food storage.  I highly recommend Mountain House Fire Roasted Vegetables.

Grow Great Vegetables in Containers with these 4 Tips

Grow Great Vegetables in Containers with these 4 TipsBy Mike Podlesny

Do not let the lack of space keep you from growing some great tasting fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs at home. Regardless of whether you have a balcony at your apartment or a small backyard in the city, it is possible to reap a bountiful harvest every gardening season.

CHOOSE WISELY

The first thing to consider when growing fruits, vegetables and herbs in containers is choosing varieties that make sense for the amount of space that you have. You might think there is nothing out there that fits your need, but that would be the furthest from the truth. There are plenty of determinant vegetable varieties that will work.

For example, if you love fresh home grown beans like I do, go with some heirloom bush varieties such as royal burgundy or golden wax, as opposed to pole beans that would require trellising and take up a bit more space.

If cucumbers are your favorite, you are in luck, because the determinant heirloom bush crop variety is perfect for your space, and grows very well in small containers. I am growing bush crop cucumbers this year and have nine plants in a three foot by three foot raised garden bed. You can squeeze plenty of these varieties of cucumbers in a small space and still get prolific production.

THE CONTAINERonions_growing_in_container
After you have decided what to grow, you now need something to plant your vegetables, herbs and fruit in. A good container will have a diameter of at least sixteen inches and a depth of no less than twelve inches, although much deeper is always better. If you can afford a bigger container for both price and space, I would highly recommend it.thyme_growing_in_an_herb_box

Because you are growing vegetables, fruits and herbs in containers, there are some things you have to remember.

Use a good potting soil that is loaded with plenty of plant food. The key here is potting soil.  Do not use a garden soil. Garden soil is too dense for a container application. There are a lot of great organic choices available, or you can make your own by combining homemade compost, a little perlite and some coir.

You will need to water your plants more frequently. Your container will dry out quicker, so watering daily will be a part of your routine, and if you are in an area with extreme high temperatures, twice a day is not out of the question. Just keep an eye on them.
Your container should have plenty of drainage. I would highly recommend drilling a few more holes into the bottom of your containers. This allows excess water to drain better. The last thing you want is excess water sitting around the roots of your vegetable plants. That will cause a condition called root rot.

pumpkin_growing_in_a_pot

LOCATION

Your plants should receive at least 8 hours of sun although you can get away with less if you are growing leafy veggies such as kale, lettuce or spinach. The beauty about containers is that you can move them around. So if you are growing a container variety of tomato, which requires a full day’s worth of sun, and the sun hits 4 hours on one side of your balcony, and 4 on the other, simply pick the pot up and follow the sun. It really is not that much work once you get used to it.

You may also want to consider adding artificial light, such as grow lights, if your apartment, condo, house etc., sits on the side that receives more shade than sun. They are very inexpensive, available at any giant home center, and do not cost that much to operate.

bush_cucumbersFEED YOUR PLANTS
Finally, don’t forget to feed your plants. Because your vegetables, fruits and herbs are growing in confined quarters, they are going to use up the nutrients in the soil much faster. If you start with a good potting soil as mentioned earlier, you can easily get away with feeding your plants once per week after the first month.

I would recommend a good fertilizer like fish emulsion or even adding some compost to the top of your container and allowing it to work its way down, which it will eventually do. You can also use that compost to make compost tea, which makes a great elixir for your plants.

Just because you have a small space to work with does not mean you cannot be big on growing your own food. With a few tips and a little work, you will be well on your way to filling up those pantries with plenty of fresh beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and more.

Forsaking Home by A. American – Book Review and Giveaway

Forsaking HomeToday we are looking at Forsaking Home, Book 4 of the Survivalist Series by A. American.  As you know, I am a fan of the Survivalist Series, having reviewed the books in the past.  As soon as I heard the fourth book was available for review, I jumped at the chance.

As a quick summary, Forsaking Home delves into what our main character, Morgan Carter has to do for his family’s survival in the aftermath of the failure of the electric grid.  At the same time, the book also covers the actions of Sarge, who plans to take down a refugee camp run by oppressors.

I enjoyed reading this book and was happy to find out what happened after we left off in the third book.  However, I the book felt divided to me, as about 1/3 of the book dealt with Morgan Carter and his family, and 2/3 dealt with Sarge and the planned take down of the camp.  I would have preferred more of the book dedicated to Morgan, as I was more attached to Morgan’s character than Sarge.

As in the previous books, you can pick up some great survival tips as you are reading Forsaking Home.  The story moves along at a satisfying pace, and keeps the reader interested in the unfolding events.

I like the books overall, and hope this is not the final book in the series.

Now for the giveaway…

If you have not started reading the books, this is a great opportunity!  One winner can win all four books in the entire series.

Off Grid Tip: How to Tell How Much Daylight is Left

How to Tell How Much Daylight is LeftThis post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com

I mentioned a while back that we “unplugged” from devices at our recent camping trip:  no GPS, no cell phones or laptops.  The kids felt strange at first, but eventually got used to it.

Apt Prepper son used this trick he learned watching Les Stroud, Survivorman – to find out how much time is left until the sky goes completely dark.  It was around 7 pm or so at the time, and he estimated around two hours and 15 minutes of daylight left.  He estimated it would be dark around 9:15 pm.  I had a solar watch and I checked the time to see if he was accurate.  I thought that seemed really late but I waited to see if it would really work.

After the sun finally went down and it was pitch black, I checked the time:  9:15.  The method was amazingly accurate.

Here’s how:

Hold your arm and stick  your hand out.  Place your hand between the sun and the horizon.  Each finger represents 15 minutes, and four fingers will equal one hour.   If you can stack your hands twice then that is two hours and so on.  In our case, at around 7 pm, Apt Prepper son was able to stack his hands twice plus one finger between the sun and the horizon, thereby coming up with 9:15 pm.

This method can be a lifesaver if you are out in the wilderness without a way to tell time.  You can gauge how much daylight you have left so you can return back to base camp in a timely manner.
